this morning. obama care contraception change, combination and really helping people out or is this a big gimmick? who is going to end up footing the bill for the third party insurer who has to pay for these contraceptives. essentially what's happening is nonprofit religious groups are not having to provide this contraception whether it be birth control or the morning after pill. to their employees, they still do have to alert the third party insurer. >> that sounded on first blush like a great accommodation because a lot of people were upset about that. if you read further you will have to provide a third party insurer. it seems kind of gimmicky, don't you think? >> the whole idea was and the critics, of course, have come out and religious institutions and george town university. other religious institutions said look, we don't want to be a part of this conversation. we should not be forced to provide free contraceptions to the people who are on our staff. we need to have that separation here. but, because they have come out and said now we need to be able to talk to these third party in
